ABOUT THE DNE SUMMIT
The Discover New England Annual Tourism Summit and International Marketplace is the only New England travel trade event where New England hospitality businesses are able to meet directly with international tour operators and receptive operators who arrange trips for tens of thousands of international travelers annually. In 2013, the DNE Summit hosted more than 5,000 meetings between travel Buyers and Suppliers in New England.
Each year Discover New England (DNE) hosts 75+ international tour operators and U.S. receptive operators. These individuals meet with New England tourism representatives from lodging properties, attractions, destination marketing organizations and state tourism offices to learn about travel products, establish relationships and initiate contracts for both group tours and foreign independent travelers (FIT).

DNE Summit Testimonials from New England Lodging & Attraction Representatives
- “I made many new contacts on both the buyer and supplier side that I feel will result in new business. There is simply no other place where you can access the buying power for international visitors …at such a reasonable cost.”“I have already started to receive business.”
- “This was our first DNE and we have walked away with approximately 7 new contracts as well as meeting 56 different tour operators and receptives in formal meetings. Some of the International tour operators are already confirming our property in their itineraries. Putting a face to a property and building relationships makes all the difference.”
- “We were able to see all the wholesale receptives and international tour operators that we targeted. We have confirmed agreements with all of the major receptives not already contracted, and many tour operators have already confirmed that they will include us in their program. DNE was money and time well spent!”
- “Opened some exciting dialogues that likely will lead to significant business.”
